Power Yoga For Weight Loss

Power Yoga is a derivative of Ashtanga Yoga to make Yoga more accessible to the current audience and to make it easier to adapt. Ashtanga Yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Power Yoga v/s a Good Cardio Session

While an hour of a good all out cardio session may burn calories, Power Yoga feeds your muscles as it works on your core and helps tone and streamline your body, builds lean muscle and it will burn twice as many calories.
Since Power Yoga not only burns calories, but also builds lean muscle it is very effective for weight loss, as building lean muscle means it increases metabolism thus being more effective in burning fat.

A cardio session may burn calories but it does not necessarily burn fat, and doing more and more cardio may even deplete your muscle reserves, which is not a good idea for long-term weight loss.

What should you do?
If your aim is weight loss and fat burn
, 2 - 3 sessions of Power Yoga a week is a good addition to any routine. If you do more of cardio and haven’t started lifting weights, Power Yoga will strengthen your body and prepare your muscles to start lifting weights.
A good mix of Power Yoga and a healthy diet is a good sustainable weight loss plan. 

If you are a runner or if you lift very heavy weights
, in both cases your muscles get contracted because of these workouts, and Power Yoga helps lengthen your muscles through stretches, again a welcome addition to your routine if you are already at a place where you do not need to lose weight but just add flexibility and leanness.
